Abstract

In this paper we present the ImmunoGrid project, whose goal is to develop an immune system simulator which integrates molecular and system level models with Grid computing resources for large-scale tasks and databases. We introduce the models and the technologies used in the ImmunoGrid Simulator, showing how to use them through the ImmunoGrid web interface. The ImmunoGrid project has proved that simulators can be used in conjunction with grid technologies for drug and vaccine discovery, demonstrating that it is possible to drastically reduce the developing time of such products.
